Lucky Star portrays the lives of several girls attending the Japanese high school Ryoo with a very loose sense of humor. The main character, Konata Izumi, is an athletic and intelligent, but also slightly mischievous and laid-back, sophomore who, despite her attributes of being athletic and intelligent, is not in a sports club and has to resort to all-night cramming for test. Konata would rather read manga, play video games, and watch anime than do her homework.

Favorite Episodes: all episodes

Lucky Star’s characters are so cute!!! And though this anime is mostly talking, I can relate to plenty of Konata’s experiences that she has with anime, manga and cosplay in each episode. For example, Konata hates when an anime series of a great manga is created and then the anime series is complete crap because the its story is not even similar to the manga’s story; I have those issues too. Plus, just like Konata has spent a lot of time and money on anime, manga and videogames, I have spent a lot of time and money on those things as well. The only difference between me and Konata though is that Konata plays online games a lot and I don’t even like online games. The big shocker between me and Konata though is that I had to get a little more serious with how much time and money I spent on anime, manga, and video games as soon as I got into college.
